—  About me  —

I help people with their technology—from their iPhones and Android phones to their PCs and Facebook privacy settings, you name it—all through clear, friendly and conversational editorial. My product reviews, features, how-tos and buying guides leave readers feeling confident, empowered, and eager to share what they’ve learned.

As a writer, I’ve developed, researched and written hundreds of articles and features for such notable brands as PCWorld, PCMag.com, TIME, CNET, Yahoo!, Men’s Fitness, Mobile Magazine, and more. As an editor, I’ve led teams of writers and built editorial departments from scratch.

I’m currently open to new writing opportunities (including on-staff, contract and freelance) for a brand that’s passionate about its readers and dedicated to high-quality editorial. Please message me if you think we’d be a good match.
